Executive Headteacher's Welcome

"On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to our Federation."


Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We are very proud of our schools and hope that this website will give you a sense of what we can offer.

The Orchard Lea Federation comprises of an infant school and a junior school based on the same site. Both schools work closely together and some key staff work across both schools. This joint approach helps to ensure that our pupils have a cohesive and progressive primary experience.

We have lovely school grounds and enjoy making use of the space that we have to enhance our offer. For example, pupils enjoy using our daily mile track and scooting around our spacious playgrounds!

We have dedicated staff and a supportive Governing body and together we work hard to aspire to deliver the best for all our pupils. We are committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment where each one of our pupils can achieve their potential and flourish academically and socially. We have high expectations of all our pupils and endeavour to nurture their self-confidence and self-esteem so that they can develop to their full potential.

We cannot capture everything in this website and are always happy for people to visit our lovely schools. Should you wish to find out more you can contact us through one of our school offices.

We look forward to meeting you.
